Barry Duncan, one of the editors of the The Heart and Soul of Change: Delivering What Works in Therapy books, shows you how to implement the ideas behind the 'Client Directed, Outcome Informed' approach. He begins by presenting the research that shows how therapists that routinely monitor the client's perception of their sessions can improve their outcomes. So many books, journals and manuals stress the importance of the alliance and what the client brings to therapy, but never get beyond generalisations such as: 'empathy', co-operation' etc. This book explains how any therapist, irrespective of their role or training background, can start to put the latest research findings into effect. Once you start to put his ideas to use in your own work, I doubt very much you'll go back to your old way of doing things.
